This article has a money making guide here: Killing hobgoblins.
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

Hobgoblins are low-to-medium levelled monsters which hit fairly accurately for their combat level. They come in two variations outside of the God Wars Dungeon, with the level 28 variant usually unarmed and the level 42 variant wielding a spear, although some level 28 hobgoblins found northeast of the Vinery in Hosidius wield spears too. This peninsula alongside, with the peninsula west of the Crafting Guild, and Tree Gnome Village dungeon, contain many level 28 hobgoblins with no level 42 variants present.

Hobgoblins frequently drop limpwurt roots, which are sometimes sold by free-to-play players as a method of making money, although less often after the update that introduced large quantities of limpwurt roots to Nechryael and Kurask drop tables, which caused their price to crash.
